Pre-Wedding Trip to RIU NEGRIL

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd let you ladies know that I had my wedding at the Riu Negril April 9 and it was INCREDIBLE!!! (we did the FREE wedding package with semi-private reception dinner that was essentially private!) everything about our entire week was AMAZING!!!!! :)

 

I hope to post a review with pics this week sometime :)  if you have ANY questions, ask away!

Congrats! Where did you have the ceremony and reception? 

 

thanks!!!! we had the ceremony right on the beach at the arch.  They have 2 beach ceremony sites. 1 - at the gazebo, but I wouldn't recommend it because it's literally right in the main area of the beach and you'll be guaranteed to have others surrounding your wedding.  The other beach location is where they have the arch .. it's in front of the fish sanctuary (where you're not allowed to swim) way at the far end of the beach where it was QUIET and pretty private.  We found people were very considerate and pretty much stayed away for our ceremony. We didn't opt to pay for any extras on top of the "FREE" package so this is how they decorated the arch for us.

Our reception was at Shadows steakhouse. I believe they do all of the receptions there because that is where there is space (unless you opt to pay for the beach).  Our dinner was deemed "semi-private" but it felt so private for us! It was held on the upper floor and before the sun went down we had a gorgeous view of the ocean.

There was another wedding on the same day/night as us. Even though they had their supper at the same time, they were way on the opposite site of the resaturant and in all 100% honesty, we didn't even know they were there. For the meal, guests went down the stairs to the buffet for their salad and then the meal was served -- they had a choice between steak, chicken, shrip and i believe 2 or 3 other dishes. My hubby and I both had the steak and it was fantastic (all of our food was brought to us at the head table). 

 

We aren't the traditional wedding-type couple (hence why we went away for our wedding) and aren't really into the dj+dancing thing so we didn't bother with any of that. After supper we just made our way over to the nightly entertainment with our guests and everyone had a great time. :)

Your pictures are beautiful.  We are considering this resort for our honeymoon.  Would you recommend it for a honeymoon?
